Question & Answers
Lost City of Argus, Ramp Blockade
How do you get past the blockade on the ramps? It seems to need a bomb, and can not find a bomb, or a way around! Help!
Answer from: NiceGuy1
Took me a second to think of what you meant. Here's where I think you mean, if I'm wrong, let me know. You just had a fight with some giant sword guys, one sniper, and a couple of spell punks who create and grow green monsters. Then the monster gates drop, you walk down some ramps to some more giant sword guys. When you got rid of them, a bouncy pad appears to drop you lower, and down another ramp you find a black wall in your way between you and your next big fight. Right?
You missed something. After the previous big fight, with the sniper and the green monsters, you drop down a little and there's a big ball on a pedestal. This is your bomb. A nearby hologram of the Weapon Master will tell you this is a Roboto-Ball, that it used to be used in some game which became too dangerous (I haven't listened to this in ages, I forget the details). Down the first ramp from this is a floor button. Step on it and the pedestal lowers. Then go back up, and push the ball down the ramps - which is why this whole area is ramps.
When you get to the 3 big sword guys (who you can insta-kill with the Roboto-Ball), you have to leave the ball behind. Bounce over the wall, then drop off to the right and go up the ramp to another floor button which will lower a barrier in your way. Climb another ramp to find some pushblocks next to where you left the Roboto-Ball. Push the blocks to let the ball through, then push the ball all the way down to where you landed from the bouncy pad. Hit that last floor-button again to elevate the ball up. Finally, just roll the ball down the last ramp to that pesky black wall. (The platform it rises on is slanted, so it might just finish this off itself, especially if you broke all the breakables when you were here before)
Good luck! And if I got the wrong puzzle, let me know.
